>> hello. welcome to "meet your district supervisor." we are here with supervisor carmen chu from district four, which includes the central and outer sunset and park side neighborhood. supervisor chu was elected to the board of supervisors in 2008 and reelected in 2010. we will get to know her and talk about the toughest issues facing the city. welcome, supervisor. thank you for joining us. let's start by talking about your background -- where you grew up, what kinds of jobs you have work. supervisor chu: my parents immigrated to the united states about 30 years ago, and i would say that is probably the most formative part of my background. growing up in an immigrant family, you learn many things. my parents raised me in southern california, and i grew up in the restaurant business. they had a small restaurant at the time, and i was there every weekend, working -- well, not working, eating. having a fried egg roll, wanton, something good. it taught me the value of working hard and what it meant to be part of a small business, a small business -- a small business, small family, and
licenses by david chu if he ever gets the legislation off the ground, he came to the neighborhood already about this and putting five on the agenda today, all of them basically surrounding district 6, so i'm wondering about the wisdom of the city of having an all day liquor license of granting five today. >> any other members of the public who would like to comment on this item? seeing none, public item is closed. do we have a motion? >> i would like to move it forward with recommendations. >> that would be the order, mr. clerk, can you slowly read item 1 so president chu can come from across the hall. >> item number 1, hearing to consider the issuance of a type 21 off-sale general liquor license to landmark retail group for cvs pharmacy located at 1059 hyde street. >> president chu, this one is in your district. >> i would like to first of all address i think the last comment of the public comment on the items for today on my count, there are two items in district 3 which are items 1 and 2 and both of them involve situations that the community and neighborhood groups i think are quite su
. overhead, please. >> it will come, if you could start speaking, go for it. >> yes. david chu made a point that the licenses were bought by cvs, here is one of the locations on poke not been bought off the abc website, it would have been updated, and also as you can see, it also states that the license has been surrendered so therefore i ask now legally the question of lower poke in their packet, the recommendation in january and in march, what i just showed you has been surrendered and it has one year in which it is to be purchased, it has not been purchased. part number 2, this is the second issue of the license being claimed to be bought which is not part of the conditions by abc, again, it does not show it's been bought by cvs. so, now i question who is still in the property -- or owner involved, cvs does not own it, misrepresentation here. i was at the meeting for january for lower poke and the community, we voted, but again when we went to the planning commission, the planning commission was concerned about this, this site and there was a big discussion about that in the planning com
is carmen chu, chair of the committee, i'm joined by supervisor john avalos, and jane kim, we have phil dillon, mr. young, do you have any announcements for us? >> yes, please turn off all cell phones and electronic devices, copies and any documents that should be part of the file should be submitted to the clerk, they will appear on the october 16, 2012 board of supervisor's agenda, unless otherwise stated. >> colleagues, item number 1 i'm not going to call just yet, they wanted to be here and present and answer questions, but they have a conflict at this moment, he will be later on in the meeting, item number 2? >> the resolution authorizing the director of public works to authorize the direct to have of public works to execute an amendment to the construction management services agreement with cooper pugeda management inc. for the laguna honda hospital replacement program. >> good morning, chair chu, john thomas, project manager for the laguna honda hospital replacement program, you have modification before you to increase the contract from 16.196 million to 16.805 million dollars t
with and moving it along the waterfront on to jefferson street. er >> thank you, president chu, does the project sponsor have any comments before we move to public comment? please come forward if you do. >> good morning, supervisors, [inaudible] i think president chu has covered all the points except for one item that i want to cover as part of our due diligence for outreach, and this is nick bovis, the proprietor of the business, we did have an ongoing dialog with the upstairs commercial tenants would was complaining about the possibility of a noise leak from the entertainment from the gold dust lounge, the gold dust lounge at fisherman's bhar f has not commenced build o*ut yet and when it does, there are plans in place to do significant soundproofing and as you well known, an entertainment permit cannot be fully granted until the inspection is given from the city, so all the safeguards in place, we've done significant outreach to this particular tenant upstairs and another tenant e-mailed me back and said everything was fine as far as he was concerned so that's about it, this is nick bovis. >>
of the lower purchase price is that the other purchaser made. and i just want to reiterate what supervisor chu said before and there has been no response to this and if supervisor campos has a response, i would very much like to hear it. the city and government entitis are not in a position to swoop in and cut a check for cash and just buy up a property quickly. i wish we could do that. we can't. and we were able to do it it would be because of a fundamental change in the public process around the process of public monies and there would be cries, including from some members of board that it would be awful to spend public money to buy land without extensive public process. so i know mta did want to buy this property. it wasn't for sale at the time and some sort -- i think it was a reit, came in and cut a check for cash and mta couldn't have done that. they would have had to finance it anyway. and if you are selling property and you can sell it to someone for cash, that is often as a seller the better and more desirable way to go. so i think that mta did the best that they could do here. i
to -- i think it's time that we start to review and i will be happy to work with supervisor chu, engage in some of these discussions with supervisor mar, we're looking at creating healthier retail spaces and i think that this is very much should be part of that discussion. so, i'm willing to move it to the next level. >> president chu? >> thank you, supervisor olague and let me say a couple of things on that point. this was not an ideal situation for the neighborhood which is why we spent many month toser negotiate and require cvs to take a number of liquor licenses out of problematic areas and i have stated to the neighborhood that i did not anticipate supporting another situation like this, at least within the polk street neighborhoods and i would be open to considering legislation if that is a direction that we want to go through as a city to state that for these types of entities, alcohol may not be appropriate, that is a conversation that would be for the future, but supervisor olague, i'm more than happy to work with your office on that, doi want to ask the project sponsor if you

consisting of department heads and supervisor carmen chu and other representatives. our key goal is to develop a comprehensive wellness plan to address risks that can be modified through behavior change and to encourage participation and engagement. by working along side labor representatives, we begin to build solutions that everyone can buy into. and this is a key pillar of my philosophy for governing. in particular, i would like to recognize supervisor mark farrell for his outstanding leadership and collaborative approach in addressing this key issue. and i know that as we did with pension reform, we'll be able to work together to overcome this challenge and develop a plan that will address our long-term challenge of sustainably funding the commitments we have made. as well as developing ways to proactively address rising health care costs. as a final note while we can and we should and we will focus on consensus measures to address this challenge, i would also like to suggest that the board of supervisors is able to take measures now to address this issue. it is tempting to c

any information about the goings on in your district? supervisor chu: our district again has so many families, and we think about how we plan for the future and make sure that the next generation has the amenities that we do not have right now, and we have got a new poll that has recently opened up that we are so happy about -- we have a new pool that has recently opened up that we are so happy about. it is already well utilize. we have two playgrounds currently in the process of being remodeled in addition to a brand-new library that is opening up. we are very excited about what this means for the many kids and families who use the library, go to the parks and plate, and who really just utilize those public services. there are many exciting changes, and we are happy to see them open up. >> what is the playground remodel? what does that look like? supervisor chu: we have playgrounds that were built so many years ago that had our senate in the wood, if you can imagine that. some of the swing sets were breaking apart. we have stand still, some people would find broken glass and other t

rosenfield. controller. you described that exactly right, supervisor chu. the board will often prove authorization for a contract that extends, for example, over multiple years. the charter requires the controller's office to ensure the city departments can't encumber that contract until the board has additionally appropriated funds to support it. in the case of a multi-year contract authorization for example we only allow the department to encumber funds one fiscal year at a time as you appropriate funds to meet that contract. so that secondary control you are talking about does exist and we do administer it and would apply in this case. the board could approve the authorization that is requested here. we would only allow the department to encumber the piece of the contract for which they had funds in hand and for which the board has approved an appropriation. to the extent additional appropriations become available, in essence it allows the mta to order the last items on the menu that would exist within the authorization you would have provided. >> thank you. so why don't we go to
that was introduced by the mayor work witching a number of my colleagues including president david chu here and supervisor mali ya cohen, and they introduced and passed a compromise version of the legislation that went into effect earlier this year in 2012, that legislation in my view and we believe that the reports from both the civil grand jury and the office of labor standards and enforcement will demonstrate this, that that compromised legislation that was passed and introduced well intended as it was in our estimation did not close the loop haom, it leaves the loophole within the health and security ordinance because it still allows employers as we always said it would to place restrictions on how the money is used and even though the legislation requires that an employer collect surcharges that the money be spent on health care, the requirement doesn't do anything that is not already prohibited from and required by existing law. there are in the books consumer protection laws that make it clear that if you collect money from consumers for one purpose, you're supposed to spend it on th
chu and s.f. bar association which we recorded and is being aired cyclically on sfgov. >> was there anybody from the building department? >> at that particular presentation, no. >> with regard to that, i mean not to -- why wouldn't we have representation there from the dbi, ma'am? >> that was probably an oversight in relationship to the coordination of the program with the sf bar association and not communicating all the different departments that may need to be there to represent and provide information. >> okay. just, you know, looking down the road here, we're all in this one together. we have a huge role to play and it's frustrating for us because we want to do all the right things. information is power, power is information to us. what is going on with the other departments so we're all on the same page with this, i don't know if any other commissioners want to weigh in on this, but it's very important. if we're to be successful and taken serious we genuinely want to resolve these issues that these small businesses are having out there, and not having somebody fro
to the landlord here so that it does not happen again. thank you. >> hi, everybody. my name is carmen chu. why don't we get started. with a marking up with the department of small business -- we have been working with the department of small business. this project started when we heard from neighborhood merchants. unfortunately, they had access issues, visibility access issues. we have been working closely with many of our partners year today to educate about these -- many of our partners year today to educate about these issues. also in terms of board guidance. i want to thank all of you for coming. many of you may have assistance. i know many merchants could not be here. please do it share this information with other merchants in the area. we have virginia from the office of small business. we have roger from the bar association. no carla johnson from the office of disability. -- we have carla johnson from the office of disability. i want to especially it acknowledge my colleague to help us get the resources and brought legal expertise to the table. i do not want to take too much of your time. t
californians, we commend supervisor cohen and supervisor chu's efforts to develop an alternative compromise legislation that was signed last year, and the mayor, however the fact that employers could reclaim health care dollars after two years did not end the incentive in our opinion of course to continue to place unreasonable expectations on these accounts, it's also our opinion that the legislation last year that didn't go into effect would have effectively closed the loophole. the office of fair labor standards report demonstrates that a large number of employers continue to place significant restrictions on hra's such as restrictions for dependent coverage, dental and vision care, we believe employers will continue to place these and other prescribers unless -- restrictions unless there are other restrictions, it's not that these funds come from nowhere, these fund should be there for these workers when they need it as previously stated by the worker that was here today. we recognize san francisco as a leader in many ways in health care reform and we encourage you all to continue your
..[reading].. tax collector. >> excuse me, president chu, are you specifying this recommendation will not be implemented? >> correct, for recommendations 1, 2 and 3. with recommendation 3, the finding should be that the board of supervisors defers to the district attorney's ongoing investigation, the board does have the power to require to pursue recommendations so this recommendation cannot be implemented by the board. going to the findings related to employer's health reimbursement accounts, finding number 8, disagree, and for this, the board of supervisors refers to the olse's response, the analysis of the 2010 annual reporting forms provides that employers allocated to health care reimbursement perhaps, flexible spending accounts, savings accounts, medical savings accounts, the 12 thousand dollars reports the amount..[reading].. from all of those types of accounts, the annual reporting form does not ask the employer's what happened, these allocation and is reimbursements were reported by 2019ed and 16 employers who submitted the annual reporting form to the olse, with regards
: supervisor chu. thank you. first off i want to thank the president for making your findings today. i think the ethicsfvf6 did do a good job of getting the information together. first off i do want tsgo) i know a lot of folks have spoken blf me my colleagues have spokens points before me so i don't want to go through them but i think it's importante;vuz talk about some of the reactions and comments i heard today just because as i was sitting here anduxinr we talk -- i think everybody talked about how dirp 1q it is, and none of us are pleased to be here, turn. there are people who saidóé ñ domestic violations advocates were trying to break up a family. i don't think they should be wd5 in that light and i hope this conversation helps us to understand thisbcz÷ better. they are not the enemy here and i want to say that it was person make these comments. i was sad to smñ=w a number of people, after they made their public comments give high fives3dc9s to people in celebration for what they had said because the cr
